Hewitson Old Garden Mourvèdre 2013

The Old Garden vineyard is the oldest Mourvèdre vineyard in the world planted in 1853. The eight rows of this rare and unique planting are dry-grown and are the original pre-Phylloxera vines that remain to this day at Rowland Flat and produce winemaker Dean Hewitson’s much-lauded single-vineyard table wine bearing the Old Garden name. The vineyard has been hand-tended and dry-farmed by Friedrich Koch and his direct descendants across three centuries.

Aged for 18 months in new French oak this full bodied red wine offers lifted forest berry, black cherry and orange peel aromas. The palate shows dense, lush blackberries and prune with hints of cigar box, violets and black pepper. Fine, seamlessly integrated tannins.
